Looking at a map, wondering where we should go…
Croatia was a must, so we we picked a country beside it- Slovenia was the lucky winner!
My sister and I knew relatively nothing about Slovenia so figured it would be lots of fun to be immersed in the unknown.
4 days in the capital of Ljubljana allowed us to get a good grasp on the country’s history and it’s general coming and goings. It was voted Europe’s 2016 Green Capital, and boy did it live up to that name! The streets were so clean and garbage disposal of all kinds were accessible throughout the city.
If you’ve ever seen the Slovenian flag, you know there is an image of a mountain on it. Some believe you can only be considered a “real Slovenian” if you’ve climbed it once in your life. Later in our travels we met two Dutch guys that climbed it- and without exaggerating, told us they thought they would die on multiple occasions. Ariane and I have our own interesting mountain climbing story- so stay tuned for that one, you won’t want to miss it.
Lots of photos below from our time in Ljubljana!
More blog posts about our trip coming soon!
